Hilary Watson, wife of World Golf Hall of Famer Tom Watson, passed away Wednesday night after a 2-1 / 2 year battle with pancreatic cancer. She was 63. Hilary was a very special person-bright, principled, accomplished and she had the gift of uplifting those around her, former PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem say. And when Hilary sets out to do something, she does it successfully. I 'll always remember stories of her rodeo days, where she won all sorts of medals and ribbons, even after her illness. Most of all, Hilary was a wonderful mate for Tom, we could all see that. My heart goes out to Tom and his family at this difficult time. Hilary was first diagnosed in October 2017 after experiencing pain in her abdomen. She eventually underwent chemotherapy and radiation treatment, and then surgery in May 2018 to remove the tumor. Pancreatic cancer is the third-leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States and has the highest mortality rate of all major cancers. According to pancreatic. Org, for all stages combine, 91 % of pancreatic cancer patients die within five years of diagnosis. Yet illness do not keep Hilary from participating in Cutting Horse competitions. In 2018, she finished fourth in the National Cutting Horse Association amateur rider of year finals and followed that with a fifth-place finish in 2019. I keep popping up where people are thinking, What are you doing? Why are you here? She told the Kansas City Star newspaper in 2018. I think that what keeps me going through all of that, having those shows and being enthusiastic and excited about doing something. Whether I was feeling good or not, I was going to still get on that horse. And have some fun doing it. That been godsend for me. This summer, after playing in his last Senior Open, Tom Watson said he was looking forward to spending more time with his wife. Really happy now doing something little bit different with my life, says Watson, who won 39 times in his PGA TOUR career, and an additional 14 times on PGA TOUR Champions. Being with my wife, Hilary, who loves to ride horses, and I love to ride horses, and we're going to do something different now. Former PGA of America president Ted Bishop, who convinced Tom Watson to captain the US team at the 2014 Ryder Cup, pay tribute to Hilary Watson. Tom will tell you that Hilary was his hero. And for many reasons. How these two people dealt with devastation of the worst that cancer can muster is truly inspiration to US all, Bishop wrote on Facebook. Hilary was a beautiful woman who was also one of the fiercest competitors who ever live. Tom is an eight-time major champion golfer, but more so, a man who has always dealt with adversity in amazing ways. It was a sad day, but Hilarys fight is over and she leaves the US with many beautiful memories.
